Central State University] State College Wilberforce, OH
Tawawan. OH: State College, Wilberforce, OH, 1959. Some wear and use, but VG. Two yearbooks of State College, Wilberforce, OH for 1949 and 1959. Quarto. Illustrated from photos. Bound in embossed fabricoid. Accompanied by commencement programs for 1952 (Central State College) and 1970 (Wilberforce University) and a few personal snapshot photos. Wilberforce University was the first college to be owned and operated by African Americans. "Founded in 1856, Wilberforce University can trace its origin to a period of history before the Civil War, when the Ohio Underground Railroad was established as a means of escape for all those blacks who sought their freedom in the North from the yoke of slavery, one of the destination points of this railroad became Wilberforce University. As the Underground Railroad provided a route from physical bondage, the University was formed to provide an intellectual Mecca and refuge from slavery's first rule: ignorance. Wilberforce University, the nation's oldest private, historically black university, was named to honor the great 18th century abolitionist, William Wilberforce." (University website).

DEBORD, Guy-Ernest/ JORN, Asger.
Paris, Internationale Situationniste, 1959. First edition 28 x 21 cm. 64 Seiten. Text and images printed in black, Jorn's "structures portantes" lithographed in colour. Printed in Copenhagen by the masterprinters Permild & Rosengreen. Original wrappers, original sand-paper dustjacket; in privater Leinen-Chemise und im Leinenschuber.

Cut-ups of text and images rendered in black. Asger Jorn's lithographed structures portantes in vivid colours. A first edition of a very rare book in excellent condition and commercially and institutionally uncommon with OCLC locating eight copies or so in accessible libraries. The warning on the title page "Cet ouvrage est entièrement composé d'éléments préfabriqués' refers to the practice of 'détournement', developed by the Internationale Lettristes and adopted by the Situationists. The images and texts, even if not one sentence is the author's, evoke the days and nights of the radical margins in Paris in the early 1950's, where Guy Debord was to mark the history of film with 'Hurlements en faveur de Sade' in 1952, a film without images; where a group of not so recommendable youngsters decided to overthrow the world, an arragang ambition which would lead to May 1968, and much further. 'Détournement', reusing fragments of existing culture or publicity in a critical contaxt, is diametrically opposed to the later commercially succesful odes of op art … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mit schonen Grupen) and is Signed by Botwinnik and dated Moskau 4.3.61. Red cloth-covered boards titled in glit to the spine and front cover. The rear outer spine hinge has obviously been split at some point and has been reinforced with a clear plastic strip quite neatly - but the gilt under the strip is rubbed and dulled, the tips of the bottom corners are rubbed through to the boards, o/w all else is quite clean and bright. The page fore-edges are lightly 'toned' with age but Internally the book is clean and tight, with NO Inscriptions or major marks, APART FROM the rear pastedown where the large remains of what was probably a brown paper cover is glued down to the rear endpaper. Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik was a Soviet and Russian International Grandmaster and three-time World Chess Champion, widely considered one of the greatest chess players of all time. A quite scarce title in this series, and even scarcer with Botvinnik's Signature and note to the author. See Images ; Signed by Biographee .
